Our January phone book club selection is by sled dog racer and Iditarod competitor Rachael Scdoris (with co-author Rick Steber). We are excited to announce that the author has tentatively agreed to join our book club discussion on January 24th, 7:00-8pm Central.
This is how the story begins: “My perfect moment: Dead of winter, dogs running flat out, air so cold I can taste its brittleness on the tip of my tongue. I know this trail…”
No End in Sight details Scdoris’ childhood experiences with her visual impairment and how she trained and developed the skills necessary to compete in the 1,000+ mile Iditarod race. At 16, she was the youngest athlete ever to finish a 500-mile race that helped qualify her for the big race. She details her struggle to convince Iditarod officials to allow her to compete and how, in 2005, she became the first legally blind person to do so.
We can’t wait to discuss this book in our TBP Book Club. If you are a TBP patron, you can RSVP by calling 800-252-9605 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You must RSVP so that we can send you the book club phone number and code to attend.
